Work demands and illness meant my project was put aside for weeks, sometimes months at a time.
This was my first patchwork quilt but I never like to do things the easy way. As I couldn't find a pattern for a Union Jack I had to make my own.
It was quite tricky to get all the "on point" work - (the corners or mitres) to line up but I was pleased with my efforts.
I made a big mistake in planning this quilt. I wanted a really comfy quilt and thought bigger was best so I chose the thickest batting (the wadding that goes in the middle of you quilt sandwiche) that I could buy. The problem was that it made it too thick to go through my sewing machine meaning I had to do all the quilting by hand, apart from the very edges.
